Neymar has been making the most of his spell on the sidelines, by enjoying a game of poker with a group of friends that included the world’s most expensive teenager Vinicius.

The Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain forward is currently wheelchair-bound as he continues to recover from a foot injury he suffered in a recent victory over rivals Marseille.

And on Friday night, Neymar posted a series of photographs on his official Instagram showing the group playing poker – with trophies even included for the top three players.

The 26-year-old came out on top among his group of friends, which included Vinicius – who will move to Real Madrid when he turns 18 on July 12.

The 17-year-old was signed by the Spanish giants last year for a fee believed to be in the region of £38million.

He is currently enjoying a final season at Brazilian side Flamengo, where his eye for goal has drawn comparisons with his compatriot and poker rival.

Neymar, who won the game of poker on Friday, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid

Neymar has also been linked with a move this summer after a turbulent first season at PSG. There have been suggestions he could join Vinicius at Real just a year after leaving La Liga for £198m.

But Andres Iniesta doubts Neymar will swap France for Madrid anytime soon, and believes Barcelona will have a better squad even if he does move.

‘If they sign him, Madrid would land one of the best in the world. But we would still have a squad which I consider better,’ Neymar’s former team-mate said.
